Fellowships and Opportunities for Graduate Students

CTL offers a number of fellowships for graduate students that offer stipends and unique, structured professional development experience. Additional paid professional development opportunities for graduate students entail training and support to offer CTL teaching support services to peers. Priority for these opportunities is given to applicants who are enrolled in the Teaching Development Program, have completed the Essentials of Teaching and Learning series, and/or have completed a CTL seminar for graduate students.

CTL calls for applications during the spring and early summer for fellowships in the next academic year. Please send any questions about these fellowship opportunities to CTLgrads@columbia.edu.
